Jennie Garth Joins New 90210 Show!

Jennie Garth is returning to her old 90210 zip code. Her character, the spoiled Kelly Taylor, is now a guidance counselor at her alma mater, West Beverly High, according to a statement from the network. Rumors swirled that she was returning to the series after she dropped out of a CBS pilot called My Best Friend's Girl last month.

CBS and CW, who are producing the spin-off, even hint that others from the original may return — calling Jennie "the first cast member to reprise her role." Jennie starred on 90210 from 1990 to 2000 alongside Luke Perry, Jason Priestley and Tori Spelling.

Since departing the teen drama, Jennie has appeared on Dancing With the Stars and What I Like About You on The WB. Full House star Lori Loughlin has also signed on for the series. She's been cast as Celia Mills, a former Olympic medalist and mother to central teens Annie and Dixon.

UPDATE: Rumors are swirling that Tori Spelling who starred as Donna Martin the original series has signed on, but it has not be confirmed.
